Used Couch Came with Furry Stowaway

Vickie Mendenhall bought a used couch for $27 and received a surprise bonus: a cat that had been hiding in it for two weeks!

Mendenhall, who bought the couch at Value Village for her new home at 3104 N. Madison St. in Spokane, said she and the other occupants had been hearing the faint sound of meowing repeatedly but could never find the source. Every time they searched for a cat, the sound stopped.

“Every night we’d hear it and then we’d try to find it, but we couldn’t find it,” said the 32-year-old mom, who coincidentally works in the cat room at SpokAnimal C.A.R.E.

“We thought it was coming through the vents into the house.”

She said her 9-year-old son, Tyler, theorized the house was haunted by a cat.

Then on Tuesday evening, she said her boyfriend, Chris Lund, was watching TV and felt something move inside the couch beneath him.

He pulled the couch away from the wall, lifted it up and voila! There was the cat, which apparently crawled through a small hole under the couch, and was very hungry and dehydrated.

Yeah, why do we need to know her address? I don't think I've left a cat in a couch recently, so I don't need to go to the woman's house.
